Late Post: This company did an amazing job for me, I had frozen pipes that burst in my basement due to the polar vortex and it flooded my entire basement. Neil from ServiceMaster came in with a full crew.and did the entire cleanup, carefully saved and boxed all items that were still salvageable and took them to my storage.Neil also worked closely with my insurance company every step of the way. After the cleanup Neil brought in a construction team to do the renovation work. The team showed up every day on time, they did electrical,copper pipes,tile work,carpet installation,insulation,drywall and painting.I am extremely pleased not only with the work but with the total experience.I highly recommend ServiceMaster for their tremendous work and the kindness and consideration that I was shown by Neil and his crew.Thank you!

The recent snow caused an ice dam to form outside of my kitchen so I called ServiceMaster to come out and look at the damages. I could see the water from the ice dam had traveled to half of my kitchen ceiling and down the cabinets. As it turns out, there were other areas in my house affected by different ice dams, we had some severe water damage. While ServiceMaster was removing the affected areas, a pipe on the exterior wall for my water main busted, this was in my basement, I had water spraying everywhere. Fortunately I did not have a lot of furniture or boxes but all the paneling and drywall got wet. The guys were great, they cleaned everything up and placed equipment they also did the build back. I highly recommend them.

Neal's ServiceMaster crews did a great job again (we've needed them before) dealing with the water damage we had recently. They sprung into action right away and quickly dried out everything, and then worked to reconstruct and replace what was damaged. The end result looks better than before. They also worked hand-in-hand with our insurance agent so that there were no budget surprises. Their level of communication was top-notch, and we really appreciated it.

The staff are great,very thorough and trustworthy.

Got Mold? Well I did! We had a slow leak from one of our appliances and condensation in the basement. We don’t utilize the basement except for storage. We started to get a strong musty smell last month, we did not know where it was coming from so we call ServiceMaster. Luis came with a device to check my walls and found what was causing the smell. I had a huge problem in my utility room. Mold had surfaced to the walls and my walls were wet, you could poke your finger through them.They removed the mold which was not an easy task, The water tank has to be removed to access the drywall so now plumbing was involved, all my baseboards had to be removed, the insulation was no longer pink, it was black. The whole process took about week bur definitely worth it.

I operate my business out of a store front in a commercial building that has 3 apartment units above my office. I came into the office one morning, and our ceilings, walls, and floors were all damaged. The second floor apartment had experienced severe water damage that traveled down to my office. I searched through the Skokie Chamber of Commerce directory and found Service Master Restoration by Zaba. We were in need of a clean up from the damage caused by water. ServiceMaster arrived fast. The techs were helpful and professional and got straight to work.After they stabilized the damage we were able to open for business immediately. After a few days of drying the job was complete and we only needed minor repairs,The techs and crew were fast, efficient, and experienced. I felt completely comfortable and confident that they would get the job done with no problem. I will definitely keep ServiceMaster by Zaba in my call list for future references.Thank you so much ServiceMaster by Zaba, you guys really did an amazing job.

My water supply line to the dishwasher somehow got disconnected while I was running the dishwasher! I loaded the dishwasher before going to bed so I did not notice it until the next morning. I knew immediately it was the dishwasher because it was the only thing running water overnight. I called a plumber he came and fixed the supply line to the dishwasher but he could not do anything about my floors and cabinets. He told me to call ServiceMaster because he works with them all the time. I called and they were booked all day then I received a call back ten minutes later and said someone would be at home in 40 minutes.Joseph arrived on time and immediately placed drying tarps on my floors. This was not going to be a quick fix so I had to call my insurance agent and he helped me make a claim.Joseph had me speak to his office to coordinate with them and the insurance company, which by the way they made it an easy process.They were able to save my floors, but the bottom cabinets had to be removed. The water also traveled to my basement but they were able to dry everything in place without having to remove the walls and ceilings. I am grateful that ServiceMaster was able to see me as quickly as they did and provide services right away.
